There’s nothing quite like making a new professional connection, whether it’s at a conference, a job fair, or a specialized user group’s monthly meet-up. Making a little effort to stay in contact with consistent communication will help that relationship blossom into one of many professional lifelines that will benefit you this week, next year, and beyond.

Take the leap and come meet connectors who are passionate about Social Media and who happen to love linking people professionally.
